I’m tired of hearing “I’m sure whatever you pick will be beautiful” and “Engagement pics shouldn’t stress you out this much” and “just pick a place!” and my most despised, “having a few options is a great problem to have!” To get things straight, I am super overly excited about my engagement pictures, this is seriously one of the things I have looked forward to even before we were engaged, so I want them to be amazing. We are having them done at the end of August in Charleston, SC but we have so many great options on top of that. Every place has a special meaning and its all so pretty! I can’t decide between the beach (something we don’t have in the midwest), downtown (beautiful, historic, lovelyness), my favorite plantation (oldest landscaped gardens…need I say more), or my old campus (with beautiful buildings and trees!!)
How did ya’ll decide? And what would you pick??

FI and I wanted a place that would be completely different from our wedding pictures. We are getting married in a garden and our reception is at the beach so we went for an urban feel in our e-pics. I don’t know if any of your locations are near each other but our photographer was willing to go to more than one spot. Good luck!

Can you do two locations?
I’m partial to the beach…especially if you are living in the midwest.

I’m awful at deciding when I have too many options. My vote would be either the plantation or the campus. Usually downtown & the beach have lots of other people wandering around & while you can still find places just for pics, if you’re camera shy or nervous about strangers walking around you… go to an area with more solitude. Beach pics can be fun, but usually there’s nowhere to change if you want to do multiple outfits & then you have to deal with sand.
If you guys met at college, I’d make my vote your college campus. It shouldn’t be too crowded since its summertime :).

We can only do one place. We are getting married downtown and taking pictures at Battery Park, which is different than most of the other places. If I wanted to go way different I would say the beach, but still not so sure. I love the plantation idea too though b/c its different and SO BEAUTIFUL.

Have you asked your photographer their thoughts? What location says the most about you as a couple and your personality? What could you bring to the location that will scream out who you are?
Our photographer is in Charleston now, and we’re trying to schedule a trip from engagements and bridal’s…. I’d love to see yours when you’re done! I’ll have to check out some of those locations myself, lol!
